Wouter picked us up from our hotel exactly on time. He is very knowledgeable about the history of the battlefields, and communicates in a very clear, engaging and humane way. Would recommend without hesitation.

It totally changed my perception of conditions in the trenches, The distance between opposing trenches was so small its no surprise so many people died. Visiting tyne cot cemetery with its many thousands of war graves left a lump in my throat. So very sad but also very proud of the young men who fell.

Wouter will provide you with a knowledgeable and engaging half day trip into the hell that was Flanders in the Great War. The cost is reasonable and if you need any personal tailoring of sites to visit you'll be accommodated.
As in any guided tour, you'll need to be willing to go back to see what most interests you in greater depth, but as an introduction to key elements of the strategy, people and experiences of the Ypres Salient it is excellent.
